At mmheels.com, we are proud to partner with Empow+r Australia.
I have been so impressed by the work the team at Empow+r are doing supporting the local community, that I decided it's something I need to support.
I never wanted mmheels.com to be solely for myself, but to be something that could also give back to those in the community who are disadvantaged or just in a tough stage in life and need support.
So with that in mind, I am excited and privileged to be able to give 10% of all profits to support this great cause.
See below for more information on who Empow+r are and what they do for the community, as well as some links to news coverage and their website.
Empower Australia is the charitable arm of Planetshakers Church. Our Food Relief Centres supply food and basic household items to help vulnerable members of the community, such as: the elderly, women referred to us from domestic violence shelters, commission housing residents, refugees, new migrants, those affected by homelessness, those facing financial hardship...etc.
We have been in operation for the past 10 years, with our main site being located in Southbank. As of 29 March 2020, Empower launched an additional 4 emergency relief sites. They are located in Pakenham, Lower Plenty, Ringwood and Geelong. Presently, we provide supplies and food to over 2000 people per week through our Food Relief Centres.
The growth in the charity has been so prominent that it has been featured by several news sources. For further insight into our organisation, feel free to refer to the following by: Channel 9 News (bit.ly/Empoweron9News), ABC Radio (bit.ly/EmpowerABCRadio) and The Age (bit.ly/EmpowerTheAge). For further information, our website is www.empoweraustralia.com.au.
Currently, we have proud partnerships with organisations such as Foodbank, Secondbite and Ozharvest and receive some stock from their charitable organisations. However, we also rely greatly on donations from our local communities and the general public in order to operate the charity. Any monetary or product donations are incredibly valuable to us, and will continue to allow for us to serve the most vulnerable members of the community and provide them with the food relief that they desperately need.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
